Try Something New

Blog #302 I recently had the privilege of speaking at the Entrepreneurs Organization Global Leadership Conference (EOGLC). EO is made up of a global network of entrepreneurs, with a membership of close to 15,000. I have been a member for eight years…and I can confidently say it has been instrumental in my business growth. To be asked to speak at this event and to be considered a thought leader is

Becoming a Certified EO Speaker

Becoming a Certified EO Speaker “I provide speech coaching to many people including Tony Robins and Damond John.” As I sat in the sunny room on the fifth floor of the Bay Side Hilton in San Diego, the man at the front of the room, Pat Quinn, who would be teaching an immersive five-day course, was introducing himself.

Setting Up a Great Zoom Studio

Blog #301 One of my goals is to be a highly effective professional speaker, facilitator, and coach while also being a hermit in the high country of Colorado 95 percent of the time. Even three years ago, the headwinds to achieve this goal would have been much stronger. But today, it is not only possible but also easy to set up. To be clear, content, facilitation, expertise, and being 100

Available Soon! Life On Your Terms

Thrilled to introduce you to my new book, Life OnYour Terms: Discovering What’s Next! Life has never been filled with more opportunities, choices, or possible directions. Yet so many of us feel lost, unfulfilled, or possessed with an innate feeling that there has to be more to life. This belief applies to people of all ages who are in some form of transition in their life, from the “empty nesters” to

Being Present Saves Time

Blog #300 I believe the greatest gift we can give anyone right now is our full, undivided attention. It is about being present, focused, and engaged. How often do you get frustrated when you feel you have to repeat yourself? Admittedly, I have experienced extreme frustration when I have explained something then the same employee comes back five minutes later and asks a question about what was just explained. They

Avoiding Outcome Bias

Blog #299 If I were to ask you the best decisions you made over the past two years, you are likely to respond with those that held the best outcomes. Yes, some of these outcomes were results of great decisions, but there were probably outside influences that also had an impact. In her book, How to Decide, neuroscientist and professional gambler, Annie Duke talks about the decision-making process and the

Avoiding Business Extinction

Blog #298 As the world speeds up, challenges increase and transitions become inevitable. Investing the time to slow down, think, and process becomes even more critical. Often, the greatest roadblock to doing this is our own bad habits and insecurities. Currently, I am working with multiple teams in a diverse set of industries that are all experiencing earth- shattering shifts. These shifts range from universal hiring shortages to extreme and

Daring Greatly

Blog #297 Recently, I spoke with a friend who was trying out online dating. It was challenging for her and she was feeling some frustration…but she kept going and worked through it. I decided to read this quote to her from Teddy Roosevelt’s speech delivered at the Sorbonne in Paris, France in 1910: It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man

Beware of the Funk

Blog #296  Yesterday, I was a grumpy SOB. I don’t like to admit it, but I was in a funk. I had just met with a client going through some extreme financial challenges, there was horrible news of terror attacks in Afghanistan, COVID Delta is heating up, mask mandates, vaccination conflicts, $5 trillion in new spending, runaway inflation, a friend had just told me he was getting divorced, huge wildfires

What’s Next?: An Olympic Perspective

Blog #295 At our home in Leadville, we recently hosted two Olympic cyclists and their manager/team owner. They had come to participate in the world-famous Leadville Trail 100 MTB (a mountain bike race). The race is 104 miles, starts at over 10,000 feet, and gains a combined total of over 11,000 feet on a variety of terrains. As they put it, they were looking for a “fun ride” after their
